The vision of the Irish Georgian Society is to conserve, protect and foster a keen interest and a respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts. These aims are achieved through its scholarly and conservation education programmes, through its support of conservation projects and planning issues, and vitally, through its members and their activities.

City Assembly House update - May 2017

Builder’s skip on Coppinger Row

Significant subsidence of up to 150mm of the central floor of the Exhibition Room was covered over in the 1950s with a plain timber floor. This newer floor is to be replaced with an oak floor whilst the original is to be conserved in situ.

Building works have started in the City Assembly House which, on completion, will see the revitalisation of the building as a major cultural venue in Dublin’s historic core. The building will continue to develop in its role as the home of the Irish Georgian and plans are already being developed for a programme of events that will include major art exhibitions, musical and theatrical performances, and conferences and lectures. Keep an eye out for updates over the coming months.

This project is being undertaken in partnership with Dublin City Council through the support of the Gilbert & Ildiko Butler Family Foundation, the Jerome L Greene Foundation, The Department of Arts, Heritage, Rural, Regional & Gaeltacht Affairs, and the generosity of foundations and supporters in Ireland, the USA and the UK.
